Poems and Prayers: Large Print

kitchen work
I say “Good Morning”
to the generations
in holiday photos
on the refrigerator

cards on the table
it will take some time
to learn all the news
and I simply pray
that they all be well

Poems and Prayers

And So My Soul: large print poem

And so my soul
Spills over
Into print again
As the sun spills
Over flowers
And the neighborhood
Sleeps

Endurance is eloquent
And marigolds are
Admirable because
They bloom
So long

Oh, my heart
Is tender
Yet God keeps it
Strong
And so my soul
Spills over
Into print again

Ellen Grace Olinger

Time of Singing,1991

From my post, Old Poem: And So My Soul. I thought it would be helpful to some readers to also offer a large print version.
